Superfast 2.0 TP in my opinion, followed closely by the Tour Burner.

Don't know if there is anything longer than the 07 Burner TP, but the open face was a little hard to control for me. Got ahold of the original Superfast TP and the face was not as open, so I gained some direction control and hit it just as far. Have tried the newer offerings and nothing has had a combo of forgiveness and length that is any better than the SFTP.

I am limited in my knowledge Taylormade drivers, but my gamer right now is 07 Burner TP  w/Accra XT60 M5,   3 drives yesterday in the 290+ range which is good for me.  It's a NEW to me driver I got through a friend that could not hit it with the tour stiff shaft

Tour burner 08 for me, I felt like I could just close my eyes and swing and it found fairways a LOOONNNGG way from where the ball started. I thought it had a cool stealth look to it.

+1 on this one....The 2008 Tour Burner TP is very long and solid-feeling head, particularly with TM's Rombax-75 shaft option.   I find that particular shaft plays very similar to the Fuji Speeder 757, which is my all-time favorite shaft.   The 08 Tour Burner is definitely one of TM's better large headed drivers, (It is 450cc in size).   If you loved the R510-TP, R540XD-TP, and R580XD-TP drivers as I still do,  chances are you will love the 08 Tour Burner TP also.

TBTP had the best look, sound and feel.  It spun too much though.  The solid loft LCG head was better for me.  The 09 Burner TP was also sweet, I just don't like the graphic on the crown.

07 Burner TP. Been off the TM bandwagon for some time now and was late to the party trying it, but man it really is all that it's hyped up to be. Best TM driver ever in my opinion.

While I've only tried 3 of the 5 on your list, the 07' Burner was/is one of my all time favorite drivers.  I don't know why, but I'm a sucker for the graphics on the crown as well.

i have a regular 07 burner with stock reax stiff shaft, and the SFTP v1 with XVS6.  i like the SFTP better and would consider selling it if you're interested.

Tour Burner TP with the tm Diamana 65, followed by the 09 Burner. Very similar, forgiving and long. The first superfast tp was good too. Something about that head shape worked.

I'd say it has to be between the '07 version one (so much better IMO than version 2 which later became the retail TP) and the SF long hosel (tour version of the 1.0). Both are as forgiving as my grandma on my mom's side and low spin. From what I remember the V1 was thought to be so low spin that the pros didn't even like it.
